The last stand.
Everyone is gone. Twisting the knife in his victory over the Winchesters, Chuck has wiped everyone off the face of the earth – save Sam, Dean and Jack. Without any hope, the Winchesters try to bargain with Chuck and offer their lives in exchange for everyone.
Annoyed by the blind obedience of God's followers, Amara destroys a park based preacher and his congregation while Sam has another vision of being in the cage with Lucifer. He snaps out of it only to see a burning bush behind him. He tries to explain what he saw to Dean but his brother still thinks it's crazy.
It's official, Sam Winchester has officially lost his mind.
Now that the wall in Sam's mind was destroyed, nothing is holding Lucifer back. Deprived of sleep for five days, Sam tries desperately to run away from the devil in his head but this only leads to him getting hit by a car.
After the leviathans consumed Castiel at the end of last week's episode, an ancient evil has returned and it is hungry.
When Castiel lost control of the leviathans within him last week, his wings were as good as clipped.
Welcome to motel hell.
The show starts in classic Supernatural style with a cop investigating an abandoned building, for what reason is never made apparent, looks around for a few seconds and notices the motel begin to fix itself when he is surprised by the bellhop.
I really don't know how the writers could justify this episode as the season premiere. I waited all summer for this? I hope it gets better because I really enjoy(ed) the escapades of Sam and Dean. I cannot even waste my time writing my usual in-depth analysis, so the bare bones version it is.
We left the boys with a dead Ruby and with Lucifer rising.
